Introducing IP Works, the Ignatian Pedagogy podcast powered by the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy at Loyola University Chicago. Built on our Jesuit foundations of Magis (maximizing our individual gifts for the common good) and Cura Personalis (Care for the whole person...body, mind and spirit), this podcast series seeks to inform and animate our community in the multiple arenas where Ignatian Pedagogy forms men and women for others.

Hosted by: Matthew Thibeau, Interim Director of The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy.
